Famous quotes containing the words batteries and/or ajax:

    Postmodernism is, almost by definition, a transitional cusp of social, cultural, economic and ideological history when modernism’s high-minded principles and preoccupations have ceased to function, but before they have been replaced with a totally new system of values. It represents a moment of suspension before the batteries are recharged for the new millennium, an acknowledgment that preceding the future is a strange and hybrid interregnum that might be called the last gasp of the past.
    Gilbert Adair, British author, critic. Sunday Times: Books (London, April 21, 1991)

    We shall renew the battle in the plain
    Tomorrow—red with blood will Xanthus be;
    Hector and Ajax will be there again,
    Helen will come upon the wall to see.
    Matthew Arnold (1822–1888)
